High-Def Plasma Cutting
Alcobra uses the best in hi-definition plasma machinery. Plasma cutting allows us to work with a variety of materials, whether it be stainless steel, mild steel or aluminum, between 3mm and 25mm thickness. With our focus on quality and efficiency, you’ll get a product that works well for both the end product and your bottom line.
A plasma torch works by shooting pressurized gas out a nozzle at high speeds. This gas is then ionized by an electrical arc, resulting in a stream of conductive plasma. This super hot plasma forms a current to the material you are working on, blowing it away and cutting through. Plasma cutting works especially well with non-ferrous metals and non-linear cuts.
